Towards Net-Zero Building

The six generations of building automation and control systems reflect the evolution from mechanical operations to advanced, interconnected technologies.

Building 1.0 involved manual operation of mechanical systems.

Building 2.0 introduced partial automation with interface controls.

Building 3.0 brought in computers and web apps for local control and real-time data monitoring.

Building 4.0 integrated cloud and web app control for automation, scheduling, and data visualization.

Building 5.0 utilizes big data, AI, and cloud computing to optimize energy usage and significantly reduce buildings' carbon footprints. Alto is here!

Building 6.0 incorporates digital twins, metaverse, AR, and VR, promising further advancements in sustainability and efficiency.
